Our curriculum is both broad and balanced. It provides of all the requirements of the National Curriculum plus activities encouraged particularly by our school to develop the intellectual, personal, social and physical activities with our children.
At Woodcote we have high expectations of our pupils, both academically and in their behaviour. Children are provided with many opportunities for developing to their potential and are encouraged to take every opportunity they can.
We believe in the value of trips and working with visitors to help bring learning to life. We have our Bronze Learning Outside the Classroom mark from the Council for Learning Outside the Classroom (CLOtC) which recognises the work we do and the opportunities we provide for children to make use of the world as a 'wider classroom'.
We are very keen on sport and include swimming, tag rugby, cricket, football, athletics, cross country, netball, gymnastics and dance in our curriculum and wider inter-school opportunities. We have a huge range of extra curricular opportunities (see our clubs page) including Free Running and Fencing this term. Since 2014, when we were awarded our Sliver Active Schools Mark, we have gained our Gold Award 3 times in successive years, recognising each year the variety and frequency of opportunities for so many children in games and sports. Unfortunately these were not able to continue being awarded during 2019/20 and 2020/21 due to Coronavirus restrictions.
For the past 6 years we have given every year 4 child an instrument with 30 music lessons and they have been taught to read music. They have the option to join an orchestra and continue to play on after their year 4 lessons.
We are currently providing Ukulele lessons for our year 4 children.
Year 5 and 6 go annually to the 02 Arena to perform with Young Voices Choir.
and children will be taught French as our Modern Foreign Language.
